Did it!

Saturday, June 30, 2012

I crossed the finished line for my very first 5k walk this morning. I was slow and came in last, but I did come in at 54 minutes, 1.5 minutes faster than my usual time.

I had a much different attitude than I had when I was in high school. I would never enter a race because 1) I wasn't good at running, 2) I wouldn't make good time, 3) scared I would be coming in last, 4) people would make fun of me.

Today was a great day. I crossed so many personal hurdles. My husband finished his run, walked back to find me and walked the rest of the way with me. I appreciate that so much. Just to hear he's so proud of me is very much worth it!

    woo-hoo! And I don't think 54 minutes is THAT slow! It's about 18 minutes a mile.
